I Quit Blogging~ but I didn’t want to! {FYI: Giveaway}

MelissaAndNickiLaughingOBSHello to any blog readers I may still have out there. My name is Melissa, the inconsistent blogger.

After I went to Israel in September 2015, I decided I’d start blogging again. And I did for a little bit. The truth is, I wanted to blog. I love writing from my heart and this is the place I get to do that. So … why did I quit? Ahhh! I get so frustrated with myself because I don’t have a good answer to that question!

This year, I’ve actually followed through with more things than I have in year’s past. (Pat myself on the back and thank you very much. Y’all clap.) Here are three areas I’ve managed to be consistent in:

  • Quiet Time
  • Weight Watchers
  • Exercise

All three of these areas have been areas where I’ve struggled in the past. I start strong but somewhere along the journey, I get weak and quit … temporarily. Then a few months later, I start again.

One thing I have to say that I like about myself. I might quit, but I don’t give up. I try again. And each time I say I want THIS to be THE REAL time I actually follow through. And I mean it! I think.

While the three areas I’ve listed above I’ve managed to keep going this year, I’ve learned I can’t get comfortable. It’s easy to quit. Like I’ve done with blogging. I started blogging again briefly. Then I quit. But I didn’t want to.

So, why if we say we really want to do something and we know it’s good for us, do we not keep doing it?

(Notice I’ve pulled you into this with me by saying “we” ~ haha ^^^^^)

How perfect that the next Proverbs 31 Online Bible Study is about becoming a woman who doesn’t quit! And even better it’s by my good friend and ministry partner, Nicki Koziarz! Whoop whoop! (That’s us in the picture above.)2016_OBS_5Habits_PreStudy_Square1-02

 

I’m so excited about this study! Y’all this book is GOOD! Even though I don’t necessarily consider myself a quitter, I’m also not a finisher.  5 habits, 5 weeks, committed leaders, an active community, and Bible study learning from the book of Ruth. This is going to be a great book and study. And I would love for you to do this with me.

While I am a Proverbs 31 OBS leader and director, I’m also a participant. I have a lot to learn in this area and I’m thankful to have the OBS community to do this with.

Would any of you like to join me? I so wish you would! If so, we can go through the study together over on the #P31OBS blog and also talk about it here. I know I could use the support and accountability, how about you?

If you’d like to sign up, click here. Sign up is free. For the study all you need to do is get the book. The study begins April 18.

And just for fun, I’m giving away two 5 Habits books! Leave a comment in this post and you’ll be entered to win. You have until 5:00 p.m. ET Sunday, April 3 to enter. I’ll announce the winners on Monday, April 4!

Let me know if you sign up and while you are at it, invite a friend too! Together, let’s become women who follow through by choosing what we want most over what we want now.

I hope you’ll join me!  :)

My Resolution 2016

Hi Everyone and Happy 2016! I hope y’all are doing great! I want to tell you about something I’m doing today.

My friend Christa, invited me to be part of her blog series New Year, New Thing: Fresh Approaches to Old Resolutions.  I’m sharing how I’ve resolved to be more than a good Bible study girl this year. I’m a Bible teacher and leader right, so it should be easy for me. Not. Read on to check out what I’ve resolved to do this year~

This is the year. I’m going to actually keep my resolutions & goals with #1 being to spend time in God’s Word every single day for at least fifteen minutes.

As I look back, this goal has come up almost every year. And like most other resolutions, it is made with the best of intentions and full confidence that this will be the year to begin and finish strong.

I begin strong. I even make a plan to help ensure all goes well. I put it on my calendar, work it into my day. I might even ask a friend or two to help hold me accountable.

So what happens?
